{Advocating} Still Waiting

On December 15th, I advocated for a little boy. Our social worker so wanted to see his family find him. And, I wanted to help her.

The post on my blog, as of today, has had 1,463 page views. That doesn’t include the views on three other websites where it was reposted.

And, he still waits.

We requested an update about him.

And, yesterday, that update arrived in my inbox. And, I had to stop and catch my breath. Because he’s perfect.

He has been healthy. Though he does not have use of his hands, his cognitive development is normal. He has been in physical therapy for 2 months.

And, he still waits.

His special needs may not be totally clear. His future may not be totally clear. But, he’s wonderfully made.

He cannot yet walk, but he can stand in the crib holding onto the rail. He likely has arthogryposis which has a lot of treatment options.

And, today, I am trusting that the One who made him knows his family already and is preparing them right now for their new son. And, until they are together, there are at least two people on this earth who are committed to praying for him. By name.
